Paris, France






Made a waiscoat with a scarf collar. It’s one of those projects that sits around for a bit before getting finished.
I wore it to work twice and no-one commented on it. I’m assuming that either it’s boring (perhaps because of the colour), or that it’s odd and everyone is too polite to say (that’s happened before).

Material Notes

Heavy cotton mysteriously chocolate brown on one side and grey on the other.
Light polyester blend with a little lycra thrown in.




Garment Type
Cotton, Polyester

    I think it is so well executed that people just assume you purchased from somewhere high end and they dare not ask :) It has absolutely none of that “oh did you make that?” look :)

    Gosh, This is so un-boring. Unless you consider really meticulous, beautiful colour, and classic lines with a modern twist boring,…. then well maybe they just might think so. I absolutely love your creations, they are so very modern.

    You should take it as a compliment – true to your style and not “home-made” looking. Or maybe they’re just jealous :) I like this – classic with a twist

    I really like it. Sometimes when things are just “normal” people don’t comment. I tend to get “oh, that’s nice” or “oh, that’s um, different” when what I make is just wierd. Or I have really good friends who just laugh! But I really think this is a neat pattern and very well done.

    It is neither boring or odd. It is lovely.

    neither boring or odd, I think its super chic and what a clever modification to add the scarf neckline.
